Concept of Perfusion & Circulation
In this lesson, we will define two types of perfusion and describe how both perfusion and circulation function to maintain oxygenation of tissues throughout the body. We will review signs and symptoms of inadequate tissue perfusion nurses will be assessing for. Finally, we will expand on important client education topics to prevent inadequate tissue perfusion.
Upon the completion of this lesson, learners will be able to:
- Define perfusion
- Understand two types of perfusion
- Determine nursing assessments for evaluating tissue perfusion
- Identify signs and symptoms of inadequate tissue perfusion
- Describe nursing interventions for preventing inadequate tissue perfusion related to dysfunction of the vascular system
